Well that sucks.

SIGMA got the word last night from Arlan Andrews.

Jerry cheated death a few years back when brain cancer tried to kill him. I corresponded with him a couple of weeks ago, and apparently he attended DragonCon last weekend.

He will be missed, but he will not be forgotten anytime soon.

If you go to his web site the posted a free Ebook by him as his last "gift" to us. I think today is the last day you can get it.
